Abstract [en]

In this thesis we have examined in which way the long term travel can be seen as an obligation among young adults. The survey is made through semi structured interviews with 52 young adults that have completed a long term travel. The responses that we received during the interviews helped us categorize six different ways. The different ways are discussed in the thesis and are summed up in the conclusion. There are many things that affect people and we have discussed the ways that the generation of our respondents experience in their life. The overall focus was the generation that our respondents exist in.

The interviews were a way to grasp what we questioned. By connecting our empirical data from the interviews with theoretical framework and analyzed the different ways that creates an obligation, we have come to a conclusion.
